High-Density, Scalable NEO XL-Series Joins Completely Refreshed Portfolio of Tape Automation Solutions That Reduce Cost of Ownership and Offer Superior Investment Protection
SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/15/14 -- Overland Storage, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVRL), a trusted global provider of unified data management and data protection solutions across the data lifecycle, today announced the availability of its new NEO XL-Series family of automated tape libraries, combining flexibility, density, high-performance and best value for backup, archive and disaster recovery. With a scalable design that provides up to 3.5PB of data storage capacity with up to 8.6TB per hour data transfer rate performance, NEO XL-Series is the newest member of Overland's award-winning NEO family of tape libraries designed for midrange and enterprise businesses facing rapid data growth and the challenges associated with long-term data storage.
For businesses with rapidly changing IT environments, the scalable design of the new NEO XL-Series of tape libraries allows them to grow into, not out of, their long-term backup and archive storage solution. Users can significantly increase their data storage capability without the time, disruption and administrative expense associated with reconfiguring the network settings or backup process. The NEO XL-Series starts with 90TB of data storage capacity, and provides the ability to increase that storage capacity up to 3.5PB by effortlessly adding additional NEO XL-Series modules. Similarly, when business needs change, scaled NEO XL-Series modules can easily be de-coupled and re-deployed throughout the data center as needed.
"Today's businesses are experiencing hyper-growth in their corporate data, which in turn dramatically increases the cost of managing their storage," said Nilesh Patel, Vice President of Product Management and Product Marketing at Overland Storage. "Recent innovations in density, high-performance data transfer rates, and end-to-end data management software make tape infrastructure an integral part of today's backup and long-term retention solutions. With six times better transfer rate performance and 64% more density per rack unit compared to the nearest competitors in its class, NEO XL establishes a new, unmatched watermark of value compared to any other competitive options in the industry."
The 6u form-factor NEO XL-Series is now available in two configurations, utilizing both LTO5 and LTO6 tape drive technologies, and scales up to 560 slots and 42 tape drives. The NEOxl 60 supports up to three drives with capacity ranging from 90TB to 375TB, and data transfer rates from 504 GB/hour to 4.3TB/hour. The NEOxl 80 supports up to six drives with capacity ranging from 120TB to 500TB, and data transfer rates from 504 GB/hour to 8.6TB/hour. A NEOxl Expansion unit that supports 80 slots/6 drives is also available.
